Bells of Ireland
(Moluccella laevis)

Not only Irish eyes will smile at this unusual plant. Its bright green bells with their tiny white 'clappers' are always a conversation piece. This strain was chosen for its superior performance as a cut or dried flower. Flowers turn a straw color when dried. Plants self-sow, and you'll be enjoying this delightful flower for years to come.
